Authorities say on February 26, 2019, on English Creek Avenue in EHT,

"Cavanaugh was the driver of a vehicle that left its lane of travel and collided head-on with a vehicle driven by Alisha Williams, 31, of Somers Point. Both Williams and her 10-month-old son, (initials) A.C., also of Somers Point, were killed in the crash. The investigation further concluded that Cavanaugh was driving in excess of the speed limit while under the influence of multiple intoxicating substances, including alcohol and alprazolam when her car left its lane of travel, causing the crash."

Cavanaugh was charged in October of that year.

She was sentenced under the state's No Early Release Act.
